Kundalini for Beginners 11 avril 2003
Par Cassandra Barnes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Ravindra Kumar, Ph.D. has studied the religions of the world and believes there is "a common thread woven through all of them." He wrote Kundalini for Beginners to explore this common thread and "to show that Kundalini or Sleeping Serpent Power is the common denominator in most cases of awakening, irrespective of the religion or faith of the aspirant."
Kundalini was awakened for Dr. Kumar in 1987. Later he retired from a long career as a mathematics professor and devoted himself to spiritual research. He has lived and worked in dozens of countries. He's written several books and conducts workshops internationally.
Dr. Kumar defines Kundalini as a form of energy residing in every human. For many people, it remains dormant. In a few, it awakens spontaneously. He says that "the awakening of Kundalini causes a transformation and transcendence in life." Kundalini that is awakened prematurely or incorrectly can be frightening, and in some cases, damaging.
He explains how people need to prepare themselves for Kundalini, then details how people can work to arouse their sleeping serpents in a safe manner. He calls his technique the "Integral Path," which he says is "the shortest path to God."
As Kundalini is awakened, it rises through the chakras, which are energy centers located along the length of the spine. Dr. Kumar describes what people should expect as Kundalini continues its upward climb from the base of the spine to the crown of the head, which for most people, is a 12-year journey.
He also discusses the roles of psychic senses, free will, and reincarnation in the journey to self-realization.
As Kundalini progresses, people experience what Dr. Kumar calls the "twin pillars of God," which are Light and Sound. These are experienced on an inner level. People also achieve an inner balance between masculine and feminine aspects, and between instinct and intellectual powers. People for whom Kundalini is fully awakened discover an ability to heal themselves and others.
Kundalini for Beginners is a useful reference for all those interested in learning "how to activate and assist the rise of Kundalini, and channel this energy in transcendent ways."

The Path to Awakening 8 avril 2001
Par Michael E. Tymn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The title of this book is a bit misleading. It is not a "how to" book. While it is intended as in introduction to the use of Kundalini energy for spiritual awakening, the book deals more with the philosophy underlying the "shortest path to God" than the techniques involved in achieving the transcendent state. The author explains that his purpose in writing the book is to show how common beliefs in most religions of the world have Kundalini energy as their common denominator even though this energy is given different names. It emanates below the base of the spine and then moves upwards through the chakras.
Dr. Kumar, who experienced his Kundalini awakening in 1987, frequently calls on scholars, seekers, seers, sages, swamis, saints, and saviors to confirm or illustrate his points. These include Buddha, Confucius, Jesus, Mohammed, Joan of Arc, Swami Muktananda, Saint Hildegard, Lord Krishna, Mary Baker Eddy, Arthur Conan Doyle, Swami Ramakrishna, Grace Cooke, R. M. Bucke, Edgar Cayce, Deepak Chopra, John of the Cross, Saint Paul, Emmanuel Swedenborg, Carl Jung, and many others, even boxer George Foreman.
As I was not really looking for a "how to" book, I was very pleased to find out the book was much more than that. It hit on all of the four "I's" for me -- interesting, informative, intriguing, and inspiring.

Resolving the contradictions among religions 2 janvier 2001
Par Jacqueline - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Kundalini for Beginners is a decent introduction to the Hindu worldview but lacks the necessary illustrations or even line-drawings.
It's written with an awareness that most of its readers will not come from the Hindu world, and shows where and how these very different religious conceptualizations of reality converge.
It focuses on the ultimate purpose of the work with Kundalini being self-actualization and healing -- both of the Self and others.
This study is related to the study of Tarot and Cabbalah. As a teacher of Tarot from a Cabbalistic perspective, I have worked with a wide variety of meditation techniques, and I find the kundalini/chakra model very effective and definitely worth learning.
The Chakras are laid out along the human body in a pattern very close to the pattern used by the classical Tree of Life Glyph. For more on that see my review of Israel Regardie's "The Tree of Life, an Illustrated Study in Magic" here on ....
Kundalini is defined in this book as spiritual energy that rises through the seven Centers called Chakras. Activating each chakra up the spine in turn energizes different parts of a person.
For example, Kundalini rises from the First Chakra at the root of the spine, to the Third which awakens an awareness of the paranormal where one gains first hand knowledge of the higher realms through out of body experiences or nightly dreams.
Between the 6th and 7th chakras, Kundalini triggers a flowing toward perfect health.
Going higher than that, people may become so absorbed with the inner realms they leave the material world behind for Self-realization.
This state of mind that can be created by the practices that raise Kundalini allows one to see the similarities underlying all religions.
And you don't have to be Hindi to do this. This little book would be a good place to start learning about it -- but I would definitely advise you to explore much more widely before embarking on any practice involving Kundalini. It can be very dangerous to your psychological health, or it can heal ills that as yet modern science can't even define.

misleading title 4 septembre 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
completely inappropriate title. i was hoping for a practical book that gives techniques and wha to expect, since the author has exoperienced awakening of kundalini , i expected rich descriptions of his experiences. instead his experiences are confined to a few paragraphs. the book heavily quotes others , and it is done professionally , with all references quoted mentioned. if you are looking for a scholarly book , then this would do. but if you are looking for a how to book rich with personal experiences, this isn't a good choice. i am looking for a "how to" book written by a snsible author (the author in this book is sensible i must say ...not over the top like some others ...)

Typical Llewellyn 24 décembre 2004
Par Jason - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Let me start out by saying that I was aware that this book did not contain any yogic exercises when I bought it. I gave this book a low rating because, quite frankly, it's crap.

First off, this book could easily be half the size it is if the author would refrain from excessively quoting other sources that are easy to understand and then rephrasing the same ideas in his own words. Second, another half of what remains could be removed if the author could refrain from repeating himself over and over. Now we are left with only 25% of the original text... and even that's not any good! The author simply presents his views of basic eastern metaphysical topics as fact. Then to make matters worse he backs up his evidence of the existence of things like karma, reincarnation, and clairvoyance with some of the worst evidence and stories I have ever heard. Apparently we can prove psychic powers exist because some lady, as she watched the Titanic leave the dock, had a bad feeling that it would sink. Don't get me wrong, I take yoga and occult study seriously, but I certainly do not need someone else's spiritual dogma attached to my practice - especially by someone unable to find any real scientific proof to back his statements.

Basically, all we have here is the same New Age feel-good crap typically published by Llewellyn. If it makes you feel better to believe that all bad things occur because of some past life karma, or you find unfounded stories about Jesus studying yoga in India exciting... well I suppose you'll like this book then. (You will also be able to tell if you will like this if you have ever bought a Llewellyn book and not regretted it). For those who take their occult or metaphysical training more seriously, don't waste your time here.
